One of the easiest ways to save even more when shopping online is via cash back sites like Ebates.com.

Just use Ebates like a search engine such as Google or Yahoo! during online shopping excursions. Most purchases made through Ebates result in a cash rebate back to the shopper. It accrues in an Ebates account until a threshold of $5.01 is reached. Then, at least four times a year, Ebates mails a check or transfers those funds into a PayPal account.

Members can earn up to 25% cash back on online purchases without having to redeem points, mail in forms or pay any membership fee. Easy! Ebates charges consumers nothing. Instead, retailers pay a commission to Ebates when shoppers make a purchase at one of more than 1,500 partner stores.

Register, and choose a bonus $10 gift card. The card is shipped after the first $25 in cash back earnings. Refer friends and family to Ebates to earn even more cash back on their purchases.

Remember, go through Ebates for each online shopping purchase in order to get credit. Click here to start using Ebates today.
